Physical Appearance[]

Powers and Abilities[]


  • Superhuman Strength: He is capable of massive superhuman strength, enough to match Hyperion's normal strength in combat. He was even confident in defeating the Avengers without Nighthawk's or Hyperion's help.
  • Superhuman Speed: Nuke can think, react, and move at superhuman speeds.
  • Superhuman Stamina: Nuke's highly advanced musculature produces considerably fewer fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of a human being. He can physically emote at the peak of his capacity for several days before the buildup of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair him.
  • Superhuman Agility: Nuke's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to levels that are far beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete.
  • Superhuman Durability: nuke's body is several of times denser than a normal human's, rendering highly resistant to all forms of physical injury and harm
  • Superhuman Endurance: He is extremely durable, able to withstand blows from both Thor and the Hulk without lasting injury
  • Superhuman Reflexes: Nuke's reflexes were similarly enhanced, allowing him to react many times faster than any normal human.
  • Superhuman Longevity: Nuke aged at a pace that was considerably slower than that of a human being
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: He is also confident in the fact that he is almost physically invulnerable to extreme physical attacks.
  • Flight: He is also able to fly at high speeds.
  • Nigh-Immortality: He cannot die as long as his body remains intact. He can easily be revived even by exposure to a small amount of an energized power source. He showed no signs of injury from his "death."
  • Radiation Manipulation: He can generate radioactive energy from inside his cellular structures and bend it to his will for a variety of effects.
    • Radiation Projection: He can project heated energy attacks for offensive purposes.
    • Atomic Blast: He can project heated radiation blasts from his eyes and mouth.



  • Radiation Draining: If all his radiation energy was drained from his cellular structures, he would need an extended amount of time to recover before his body can reproduce more. In such a drained state, he has all the physical attributes of a human being.
  • Resurrection: He needs to be resurrected, should he ever die. If the people choose not to resurrect him, he will remain dead for all of eternity.
  • Arrogance: The Avengers were able to use his arrogance to their advantage in trapping him.
